New member - looking for noob info..

Hey guys, my wife and I have always wanted a Jeep. Something about a manual trans 4x4 with a removable top appeals to us.

We have always shyed away due to mileage concerns as it would be a daily driver. Ad's are now staying the new 2012's are getting up to 30mpg???!?!

Is this even remotely possible? Some searching around on here is showing up with 20-23 at BEST. How can they claim 30mpg and in reality get 10mpg worse then that?

YES i know driving styles will affect this, but I got to think SOMEONE would have to get at least CLOSE to the projected numbers -- otherwise i'd nearly expect a class action suit ;-)

It (IMO) is the Corporate fault.....Chrysler not just Jeep. They are not talking about Wranglers but some of the "other" Jeeps and showing wranglers while that is being said in the I have seen or heard of is 22-23mpg on ANY wrangler.
